Welding alum will introduces a high heat cycle that will reduce temper to T0 at least in the heat-affected-zone or in the entire part depending on how hot the whole thing gets. So, there goes all your strength... until you re-temper it. Sending the part off for heat-treat after welding will return it to the desired T level.
right, it can be re heat treated, but that isn't something most welders will be equipped to do and it's going to be awfully expensive for a part that size.

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Ok here we go again with a subframe from 899 this time. The reason I've choose to buy this and not build one, is that I'm not sure If I can make it lighter from the OEM. It's a litle complex. Doable to build but complex enough, to give all the efort and money and stay with a heavier subframe at the end.
So 899 subframe it is and the 1199 one is on ebay for selling. I should have it next week.

That seems much easier to work with. If that’s steel I reckon even I could knock something up 😂

It's piece of cake to make it work. Yes it's made of steel
